The snow came on December 1st, as though the weather follows the calendar. It came again today, and my little son gamely shoveled the yard while my elder son and I slogged through the storm to get him to his high school entrance exam. Yes, my son has reached that milestone that is almost more moving to me than his first day of kindergarten.
So now his moody mother sits and looks at the snow and contemplates the lyrics of "Sunrise, Sunset." :)
